1-MELFORT MUSTANGS 39-12-4-2 (2)
With eight wins in ten games against Nipawin, it’s time to put them on top.
2-NIPAWIN HAWKS 41-8-3-4 (1)
Hawks are 6-3-and-1 since their lengthy unbeaten streak was stopped. Nothing to be ashamed of, but it looks ordinary when compared to their 30 game run.
3-BATTLEFORDS NORTH STARS 41-12-2-0 (3)
Mathematically, they could still steal the number one seed.
4-HUMBOLDT BRONCOS 33-18-3-3 (4)
They split the season series with Melfort (3-3), but the other two teams ahead of them in the rankings have dominated the Broncos. 0-1-2-3 against Stars, 0-6 against Hawks.
5-ESTEVAN BRUINS 32-19-3-2 (5)
A big push to get Bo Didur minutes to qualify for lowest GAA, as he sits at 2.39 heading into the final week.
6-KINDERSLEY KLIPPERS 28-21-4-3 (6)
Nikolas Malenica has emerged as an offensive threat down the stretch and Cole Plotnikoff is back after lengthy injury layoff.
7-MELVILLE MILLIONAIRES 23-29-2-2 (8)
Mils are 6-0-and-2 in their last eight, playing their best hockey of the year at just the right time.
8-FLIN FLON BOMBERS 22-26-3-5 (9)
A solid 2-1-and-1 showing on a four game in five night road trip through the south this past week.
9-NOTRE DAME HOUNDS 28-24-1-4 (10)
A big come from behind win over Weyburn on Saturday stops the reeling for the now.
10-WEYBURN RED WINGS 28-23-5-1 (7)
They let a glorious chance to bury the Hounds in the standings get away on Saturday, at home, no less.
11-YORKTON TERRIERS 13-39-3-2 (11)
The Highway-10 rivalry wasn’t even much of a contest this year as the Terriers went 3-and-7 against the Mils. Those lost points, pretty much, are where the Terriers can identify missing the playoffs.
12-LA RONGE ICE WOLVES 10-43-0-3 (12)
Winless in four, they have two games left in the regular season.
